"Jade" as written by and Alex M T Ebert Christian Letts....
She runs through the Valley of Death and of Sleeping
She laughs as she dances her feet wake the flowers
She comes a now running through our gloomy town
Yes Jade is the girl of the hour
We can't help but follow she's Buddha just watch her
She moves like an old gypsy woman but swears she's a girl
And all that she asks we'll allow her
For Jade is the girl of the hour

It is her hour so let it be hers
Find it and shine it and wind it always
It is her hour so let it be hers
Yes Jade is the girl of the hour

The people in town now just wake up to see her for
When she smiles they all feel the power
The strong men the children and even the cowards
Know Jade's the girl of the hour

It is her hour so let it be hers
Find it and shine it and wind it always
It is her hour and always it's hers
Yes Jade is the girl of the hour

You won't soon forget the name

Softly now join her she's blessed for construction
She sings and sounds off the hammer of god
Man, I swear she's come here to fill us with power
It's Jade the girl of the hour

It is her hour so let it be hers
Find it and shine it and wind it always
It is her hour so let it be hers
Yes Jade is the girl of the hour

It is her hour so let it be hers
Find it and shine it and wind it always
It is her hour so let it be hers
Yes Jade is the girl of the hour

And you won't soon forget the name

    General CommentI'm going to have to say that you looked way to far into it, hahaha.
    It's about Jade, the girl that Alexander the lead singer is dating.

    General CommentI believe that this song is about capitalism. Jade represents not only money buy also greed for it.

    She runs through the valley of death and of sleeping
    She laughs as she dances her feet wake the flowers
    She comes up now running through our gloomy town
    Yes, Jade is the girl of the hour

    Money has just entered the town.

    We can't help but follow, she's Buddha just watch her
    She moves like an old gypsy woman but swears she's a girl
    And all that she asks we will allow her
    For Jade is the girl of the hour

    Talking about how they can't help but use the money as they see it bringing supposed happiness with it. The lines about old gypsy woman but swears she's a girl is a reference to new money versus old money.

    It is her hour so let it be hers
    Find it and shine it and wind it always
    It is her hour so let it be hers
    Yes, Jade is the girl of the hour

    I think this is about the continuation of the greed. Also, the fact that she is the girl of the hour I believe refers to hourly wages.

    The people in town now just wake up to see her
    For when she smiles they all feel the power
    The strong men, the children, and even the cowards
    No, Jade is the girl of the hour

    This is talking about peoples motivation, now they are waking up for the money alone. When they have a lot of money or "when she smiles" everyone weak or strong becomes more powerful

    And you won't soon forget the name

    Saying that capitalism won't go away anytime soon.
